? ? >> announcer: this is the cbs "overnight news." at long last, the presidential campaign is now in the homestretch. after last night's third and final debate. hillary clinton rode into the showdown in las vegas on of rising poll numbers. but dragging behind her more questions about e-mail revelations. donald trump entered the final round insisting the race is rigged against him and facing sexual assault allegations from multiable women. here's what some of the candidates have to say. >> you have been warning at rallies recently that this election is rigged and hillary clinton is in the process of
3:01 am
pence pledged sunday, he and you, his words, will absolutely accept the result of this election. today your daughter ivanka said the same thing. i want to ask you here on the stage tonight do you make the same commitment that you will absolutely, sir, that you will absolutely accept the result of this election? >> i will look at it at the time. i am not looking at anything now. i will look at it at the time. what i have seen, what i have seen is so bad. dishonest. and so corrupt. and the pile-on is so amazing. "the new york times" actually wrote an article about it that they don't even care. it is so dishonest. they have poisoned the mind of the voters. unfortunately for them, i think the voters are seeing through it. i think they're going to see through it. we'll find out november 8th. >> but, sir. >> excuse me, chris, if you look at your voter rolls, you will see millions of people that are
3:02 am
millions this isn't coming from me. from peer report and other places. millions of people that are registered to vote that shouldn't be registered to vote. so let me just give you one other thing. i talk about the corrupt media. i talk about the millions of people, tell you one other thing. she shouldn't be allowed to run. it she's guilty of a very, very serious crime. she should not be allowed to run. and just in that respect, i say, it's because she should, chris, she should never have been allowed to run for the presidency based on what she did with e-mails and so many other things. >> sir, there is a tradition in this country, in fact, one of the prides of this country is the peaceful transition of power and that no matter how hard fought a campaign is, that at the end of the campaign, that, the loser concedes to the winner. not saying that you are necessarily going to be the loser or the winner, but that the loser concedes to the winner
3:03 am
together in part for the good of the country. are you saying you are not prepared now to -- i will tell you at the time. i will keep you in suspense, okay? >> chris, let me respond to that. because that's horrifying. you know, every time donald thinks things are not going in his direction, he claims, whatever it is is rigged against him. the fbi conducted a year-long investigation into my e-mails. they concluded there was no case. he said the fbi was rigged. he lost the iowa ca he said the republican primary was rigged against him. then, trump university gets sued for fraud and racketeering. he claims the court system and the federal judge is rigged against him. there was even a time when he didn't get an emmy for his tv program three years in a row and started tweeting the emmys were rigged against him. >> should have gotten it. >> this is a mind set.
3:04 am
troubling. that is not the way our democracy works. we have been around for 240 years, we have had free and fair elections. we have accepted the outcomes when we may not have liked them. and that is what must be expected of anyone standing on a debate stage, during a general election. you know, president obama said the other day, when you are whining before -- >> hold on, folks. hold on folks. >> before it is finished. it shows you are not up to doing th let's be clear about what he is saying and what that means. he is denigrating, talking down our democracy. and i, for one, am appalled that somebody who is the nominee of one of our two major parties would take that kind of position. >> at the last debate, you said your talk about grabbing women was just that, talk. and that you had never actually done it. and since then, as we all know,
3:05 am
them, or kissed them, without their consent. why would so many different women from so many different circumstances over so many different years, why would they all in this last couple weeks make up, you deny this, why would they all make up these stories and since this is a question for both of you, secretary clinton, mr. trump says, what your husband did and that you defended, was even worse, mr. trump, you go >> first of all the stories have been largely debunked. those people. i don't know those people. i have a feeling how they came. i believe it was her campaign that did it. just like if you look at what came out today on the clips where, i was wondering, what happened with my rally in chicago? and other rallies where we had such violence? she is the one and obama that caused the violence. they hired people, they paid them $1,500, and they're on tape
3:06 am
do bad things. i would say the only way, because the stories are all totally false. i have to say that. and i didn't even apologize to my wife who is sitting right here because i didn't do anything. i didn't know any of these women. i didn't see these women. these women, the woman on the plane, i think they want either fame or her campaign did it. and i think it is her campaign. because the what i saw, what they did, which is a criminal act, by the way, where they're telling people to go out and start fist fights andta violence. i will tell you what, in particular in chicago. people were hurt and people could have been killed in that riot. and that was now, all on tape, started by her. i believe chris, that she got these people to step forward. if it wasn't, they get their ten minutes of fame. but they were all totally, it was all fekttiiction and lies a was fiction. >> secretary clinton.
3:07 am
to women. and after that, a number of women have come forward. saying that is exactly what he did to them. now, what was his response? well, he held a number of big ralies. whe -- rallies. where he said that he could not possibly have done those things to those women because they were not attractive enough. >> i did not say that. i did not say that. >> in fact he went on to say -- >> her two minute sir. >> but did not say that. >> it is her two minutes. >> he went on to say, look at her. i don't think so. about another woman, he said -- that wouldn't be my first choice. he attacked the woman reporter, writing the story, called her disgusting. as he has called a number of women during this campaign. donald thinks, belittling women makes him bigger. he goes after their dignity,

who doesn't know what that feels
